Weeell, I almost drowned when I was a little kid. I was swimmimg with a friend in her indoor pool and while she was over at the deep end I decided I wanted to go over there too. Even though I knew I couldn't swim, I thought it didn't seem hard to stay afloat (I was sooo stupid xD) Anyway as soon as I went over to the deep end I instantly went under and kind of thrashed around. Luckily I had one of those floating noodle things with me. I don't remember if my friend noticed me drowning in the beginning or just before I saved myself or if she even noticed at all since she was a ways away from me, but I do remember afterward her brother came walking in and asked me if I had just been drowning. Surprisingly though, instead of freaking out or crying, I kind of just grinned up at him like, maybe. xD

I didn't get addicted. I got dry-mouth and everything aside from the severe paranoia. Never doing that again.


Any thoughts on sharing your paranoid experience? Like sharing graphic details. Paint a picture. Anything?


I'm gonna try to go in order from when it happened to when it settled down.

Well, I was in my buddy's truck and he offered me it. I took a grand hit, I think. I felt like throwing up my insides with just the one hit. I couldn't breath or anything and I felt veins form on my head. He asked to drive me to my car, and once he was was doing so, I noticed everything just screwing up. I said I couldn't feel my teeth and breath. I started to get that swelling and dry-mouth. It was a horrid experience in my opinion. Not even knowing, I started to scream. It was unreal. Every single thing was immediately slow. The entire world was slow. I was "testing" my reaction of trying to touch his shoulder in about a second. It took me about 5 seconds to touch his shoulder and hopefully touch it. On top of that, I couldn't feel it.

Another phase started to happen. It went from god-awful slow to sonic fast. Everything was immediately fast like Sonic the Hedgehog or something. My legs started to kick and my eyes went practically everywhere. I was telling my friend that I felt like I could literally race against time. A car went by to my right and it went a little too fast although it wasn't. That's when I started to lose it even more. All of a sudden, it went extremely slow again, couldn't feel anything. I couldn't speak words now. He managed to walk me to my car and I tried to nap it off. I napped for a bit in my car as he left.

It settled to the point that I knew my surroundings, but when I felt something, I could get the sensation on my fingers about 2-3 seconds later. Thus, I had to DRIVE home while the sun was still good for me to see. I couldn't feel the wheel or anything, but I knew how fast I was going and where to go.

It was insane. I may sound dramatic about "ohh, it's just weed man", but I swear, this stuff wanted me to freak out and die. The entire time my body was in severe mode. Not sure if it was laced or I have an allergic reaction, but my paranoia was off the charts with each phase it had on me.


Thanks for sharing.
Wow. Your senses were screwing up.

The way you describe it is like I don't even want to try the weed you were taking.
I don't even dare getting drunk. I might unleash a beast of an asshole that I don't want to show. =T

Wherever death is, we are not.

To know of something requires being aware of it.

Being knocked out for the last time, precludes our ability to experience it.

To be nearly killed is something which happens every microsecond as there are a multitude of fingers hovering over the buttons of a vast number of world ending warheads 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

I've had quite a few but I'm not going to talk about them on an open forum. Some aren't as dramatic and talked up as people want and the rest are connected to too much bad shit.

Sorry man, not tryin to turn this into a drug conversation, but I've been smoking for almost 5 years now. I've had an experience almost exactly like what you described a handful of times. The first time was when I smoked pot that (unknown to me until I'd already hit it) was laced with PCP. Sometimes people do lace their weed to cover up the fact that it's weak. I've made the mistake of smoking unclean weed two or three times, each time with similarly horrible results. The last time I felt like that, it sure as hell wasn't weed, but spice; synthetic weed. Bunk plant material soaked in a chemical that usually begins with JWH-*** where the numbers refer to the specific compound. It's basically a cheap lab chemical extracted with acetone. I'm all for weed, when used responsibly there are no damaging side effects. Synthetics are NOT suitable for human consumption and can lead to extreme psychotic disabilities over repeated usage. Sorry, but that wasn't weed you smoked; or if it was, it wasn't *JUST* weed. :P

That having been said and I shall say no more of it, ON TOPIC HERE

A week before halloween 4 years ago I caught what I thought was the flu. Got reeeeeeally sick. Went to the clinic. Turns out I caught freaking Mononucleosis. Few days of agony later, sun goes down and I almost stopped breathing altogether. Got rushed to the ER, nurse took one look at me and got me in immediately. Shot to the veins of morphine and I felt better. Then the doc comes in. Takes a look down my throat, my tonsils were swollen to all hell and I had an abscess in my throat. Between the tonsils and that, my throat was closing completely. Doc tells me another hour and I'dve suffocated. He says he wants to do throat surgery pronto, BUT FIRST. A spinal tap. I say great, wanna do a nightmare-inducing procedure that almost never goes by without extreme pain? I'm all in, just gimme more drugs -insert cheesy drugged up grin-. They didn't. But they did do the spinal tap which much to my surprise; I felt nothing. No pain no grief at all. Happy. Going in for surgery, count down from 10-9-fucked. I open my eyes, and it's morning the next day. Something's really, reeeeeeally wrong here... I had throat surgery but my dick is in extreme, unfathomable pain. What the HELL did they do!? I look, and there's a big tube in it. fuck. Spam the nurse button, she comes in, HEY GET THIS THING OUT OF ME I GOTTA PEE! Oh, that's so you don't make a mess, just let it out. If you say so... made a mess anyway. what the... JUST GET IT OUT. I can't do that until the doctor gives me his approval and he's not here yet. WHAT. An hour later, he's here, they take it out and OH MY GOD. That wasn't pleasant. Stitches in my throat, drinking water hurt like hell. Going to the bathroom, not a pleasant experience... AND IT GETS BETTER. Left lung collapsed during surgery. They got it working again but I coughed up some baaaaad shit a day or so later.

And that's the story of how I got my throat cut open, a tube up my junk, my immune system shot to hell, and began sleeping 16+ hours a day. Now I'm down to 10 hours a day when I can sleep.

Edit:: Anyone who's an ass when drunk is an ass when sober, just a lot better at hiding it. Alcohol never changed my personality, just gave me enough screw-it in my system to do what I'm thinking. Yayyyyyy.

It was most likely laced with something. From stories I hear, weed relaxes you for the most part. But the entire time I was in a whole other realm.

I almost drowned in a hot tub at my older sisters rich friends house back in 2000-01, somewhere around there. Yeah my sisters friends had a birthday party and invited my sister and I wanted to tag along. We went in their small hot tub in there front yard, just sitting and hanging out in there. My sister and her friends went inside and I wanted to come to and but I slipped inside the hot tub somewhere ( -_-)? and sank. My dad saw me and quickly saved me! I don't know if they remember but I still do. I don't think my mom knows about it.

I also got in a car wreck in 2000 when my dad was dropping my mom off to work. I was 4 and still remember that. I remember when we got hit, the air bag was in my dads face and he didn't say anything for a few seconds and I asked him, "Dad, you died?" lol, "No, I'm not dead". Me, my dad, and my older sister were in that car. My dad said after that the police came and we all got out of the car and the officer gave me a plush of some sort. My dad also said the policeman congratulated him cause we all had our seat belts on.
Yep.

At an early age during school, I was hit in the head by a falling lunch room table. It cracked my skull open and left large cuts on my back. I passed out from blood loss moments later. I have no idea how long I was out for but I awoke to staples in my head.

When I was a kid I had a cold. My mom gave me a 12 hour cold pill and 2 hours later she gave me a 6 hour cold pill.
I went to sleep. Later I woke up in the middle of the night and I could not move. Then a white shadow pops up from
the floor and says "lets go". Next I'm in a place with black & white tiled floors that stretch to the horizon. There were
lots of people from many different backgrounds standing around and talking happily about how their lives were.
Then I snapped out of it and woke up. Thanks mom...

Be my guest!
Just know that you can't move, you can't talk and then weird sh*t comes out of the floor
and takes you.
Enjoy.
